I have an eight year daughter that is severely mentally and physically handicapped.

I am wondering if I can get her baptised and can she receive holy communion and chrismation?

Can I watch her baptism and be with her as she receives communion and chrismation?

I am not orthodox...yet.

Yes, she could do all those things and we Orthodox generally commune in public, so of course you could be there. However, this is something you should talk to a priest about...if you are considering becoming Orthodox then you would probably be received together as a family.
